The Women’s Buddhist Association (WBA), formerly known as the Fujinkai, is an organization which welcomes women of all ages and from all walks of life and reflects a broad range of talents, ideas, and energy.
The WBA supports the temple through its activities, such as the Spring Food Bazaar and the temple Summer Bazaar.

We also participate in other community activities and support their events.
However, it is not “all work and no play.” We know how to have a good time. Workshops are hosted to have fun and to create items that can be used to sell at the bazaars.
There are fun trips for the group, such as seeing art exhibits or attending plays.
We attended the 16th World Buddhist Women’s Convention in San Francisco in 2019.
The Fujinkai decided to change the name of the group to Women’s Buddhist Association (WBA). One of the motivation to welcome all women from all ages and all walks of life thus to create an organization to reflect a broad range of talents, ideas, and energy.
